Student pleads not guilty to drug charges

From staff reports

Sierra Windsor pleaded not guilty in her first court appearance Friday at the Whitman County Courthouse.

Windsor was arrested on Feb. 16 for two counts of delivering a controlled substance, and was charged for the same. Both counts are for delivery of cocaine.

A confidential informant working for judicial consideration informed Quad Cities Drug Task Force detective Brock Germer they had located a cocaine dealer by the name of Sierra, according to probable cause documentation.

Germer was able to locate Windsor by her Facebook profile, which showed she was in a sorority at WSU.

The confidential informant met with Windsor on two occasions in a controlled-buy situation, according to the documentation. Both encounters were recorded on a body wire. The female voice recorded on the body wire could be heard telling the informant she was a member of Sigma Kappa, according to the document.

Windsor was a member of the Sigma Kappa sorority at WSU at the time of her arrest.

Windsor was granted a change in release terms in court Friday. She is allowed to visit and reside in Oregon, where she’s from. Her attorney, Michael Pettit, said Windsor wants to visit her parents over the weekend.
